About the Book

Scotland Recommends is the savvy local you've been looking for. For over a year, readers have been writing in to the Recommends section of The Scotsman, telling the paper that they know a great little Mexican down Victoria Street or a spine-tingling cave in Ardnamurchan. These are the best (and most useful) of the home-grown endorsements, brought together into something better than a guidebook - it's more like a little friend to carry around in your pocket.

With a great line-up covering the basics (dog-friendly hotels, romantic restaurants, cheap places to eat), as well as the weirder holiday pastimes (wishing wells and trees, where to find conkers, the best public toilets) and things that are just plain fun (traditional music venues, chocolatiers, places to build sandcastles), this book is designed to be useful for the native Scot as well as the holidaymaker.
